Wanting to move in retirement but think you can’t afford to?

Retirement specialist McCarthy & Stone is inviting the over 60s in West Sussex to challenge them to get you moving.

The developer is currently selling a range of one and two bedroom retirement apartments at its development including Amelia Court in Worthing, and Caen Stone Court in Arundel.

Prices start from £164,950 and a number of incentives are currently available to help get you moving – which means you could be making a move sooner than you think.

Pop into either development now and talk to McCarthy & Stone’s experienced sales team about its Part Exchange or Move Assured schemes.

Through Move Assured, the retirement developer aims to sell your existing home at a pre-agreed price within 12 weeks and covers many of the costs associated with the sale.

Your property is marketed for 12 weeks through an estate agent and, if you receive a realistic offer below the guaranteed selling price, McCarthy & Stone will simply make up the difference, enabling the sale to proceed.

Or, through Part Exchange, McCarthy & Stone guarantees a buyer for your home by purchasing your existing property at an agreed price - no chains, no estate agent’s fees and no chance of your buyer pulling out at the last minute.

Then, once the house sale is taken care of, McCarthy & Stone will even help with the move through its free removals service.

An experienced removals team will declutter your home, taking any unwanted items to charity, and will provide assistance with both the packing and unpacking.

And for added peace of mind, McCarthy & Stone offers a free financial health check and a benefits review for anyone purchasing or considering one of its apartments.

Wendy Slingo, regional sales and marketing director, comments: “Selling your home in the current market can be an expensive and time-consuming process and there’s no guarantee that you’ll get the offer you need.

This can be particularly disappointing when you’ve got your heart set on another property.

We are confident that we can help get you moving, alleviating some of the costs and ensuring everything runs smoothly. It’s the kind of peace of mind that you simply can’t get when you sell your property in the usual way.”

Both developments comprise of a selection of stylish one and two bedroom apartments set in convenient locations.

Residents are able to enjoy landscaped gardens that are regularly maintained by an external company, socialise and relax in the communal lounge and invite family or friends to stay at the development’s hotel style guest suite.

Retirement Living properties at Caen Stone Court provide a low maintenance design that is ideal for anyone looking for a more manageable home that offers continued independence in later life.

The light and airy open lounge and dining room adjoins a well appointed kitchen comprising modern fitted units, a built in oven and hob plus a fridge freezer.

Assisted Living at Amelia Court offers all the same design benefits as Retirement Living, but is also fully wheelchair accessible throughout, and has electrically operated window for ease of use.

Residents at Amelia Court can also enjoy a hot meal 365 days of the year at the development’s restaurant.

As well as the neighbourly company of other like-minded retirees, there is also staff on site 24 hours a day to keep an eye on things and help when needed.
